FigLeaf is a new start-up that has developed the only all-in-one, comprehensive privacy solution that gives consumers – the power and the choice to protect their privacy, wherever they go online.

Online privacy has been impossible – until now. FigLeaf is the first to create a new paradigm for online privacy control by designing one comprehensive, easy-to-use app that empowers individuals to control their own data, image, reputation and identity no matter their location, device or activity. Our first-of-its-kind desktop and mobile app gives consumers the power to finally understand where their personal data is, who has it, and what data they have – empowering consumers to fully manage and control their privacy and making online privacy possible for everyone.

FigLeaf’s “Privacy by Design” approach only gathers the personal data a consumer chooses to share, and our proprietary “zero-knowledge” solution gives the individual the only key to their data, ensuring no outside party can access their personal information – not even FigLeaf.

Our vision: When privacy is a choice, humanity is free.
